Environmentally Friendly HVAC


Since the month of April withholds the wonderful but sadly understated, Earth Day, it only seems appropriate that we create a blog that discusses how Poorman’s Heating and Air Conditioning’s biggest  HVAC manufacturer stays green.

Trane takes great pride in creating environmentally friendly products and factory atmosphere.  Here’s a direct quote from our partners at Trane’s website:

Energy & the Environment – Energy, IAQ & the Environment

Better Buildings Create Greener Communities™

Demand for environmentally responsible buildings grows as people realize that it’s not a cost, it’s an investment. Green buildings are designed with energy efficiency, indoor air quality (IAQ), and sustainable materials in mind.

The right HVAC system is critical to green building. As a leading global supplier of HVAC systems and services, with more than 450 LEED Accredited Professionals, Trane can help you achieve your green building goals.

Building Green

Because more and more businesses recognize the importance of building green, Trane actively supports the Green Building Councils (GBC) around the world (such as USGBC, Canada GBC, Indian GBC, China GBC, Brazil GBC, Mexico GBC, etc) and Green Building conferences such as Greenbuild and Green Building Congress. We are advancing building technologies and solutions that accelerate the design and construction of green communities.

Here are just some of the ways Trane is helping buildings go green and attain LEED certification.
